Walk the Walk: Prada F/W 2015 Collection

Leave it to Miuccia Prada to stun you with a collection full of surprises! The biggest one being the use of a pastel color palette.  Usually applied to S/S collections, the switch up has Prada fans, such as myself, wanting to fast forward to the F/W 2015 season. As many of you are aware, Prada is known for using interesting fabrics (nylon for bags for example), and this time she choses to use double-faced jersey to create well tailored suits with a neoprene look in the end.  Ostrich leather, Perspex and furs are used to create noteworthy pieces for the collection. Prada print lovers are sure to find the molecule print to be a must have for next season.

In my opinion, this collection consists of some of the best elements from the S/S 2011 to S/S 2014 Prada collections. If this collection was a box of candy, I'd want to sample everything!

- This collection consists of some of the best elements from the S/S 2011, F/W 2012, and S/S 2013, F/W 2013 collections.
- The pastel color palette is refreshing, not your typical F/W color palette.
- The shoes and the bags are beautiful. The bag in bag is going to be a hit next season.
- The use of double-faced jersey is going to set the trend for the fashion world. Expect to see this material on other collections soon.
- Prada always has nice prints and I am dying to own a tie with that molecule print.
- The silhouette of the suit is great, it adds a masculine vibe to the Prada woman.

Eye Candies:
- The double-faced jersey suits
- Shoes
- Bag in Bag
- Perspex brooches
- Pastel green ostrich coat
- Pastel pink ensemble
- (pretty much everything)
